DJ Afrojack Takes Bugatti Veyron from 0 to 201 MPH

0 to 200, real quick... That’s pretty much what this video showing the Dutch DJ driving a crazy hypercar on track is all about. He became the 7th highest-earning DJ in the world, last year, according to Forbes magazine, and loves expensive and super powerful cars. Afrojack might not be the best driver in the world, but definitely makes it on the most lucky ones list, considering his latest drive.

With his debut album, Forget the World, hitting the market this May it would seem the Dutch DJ is having quite a successful time lately. Not that he was already at the top. He ranked at number 9 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ’s of 2012 and the next year ranked at number 9 again. Afrojack’s song “Take Over Control,” which features Dutch singer Eva Simons, charted in 10 different countries.

Nick van de Wall, on his real name, featured all sorts of famous artist such as Pitbull, Ne-Yo and Nayer, and also contributed to the single Run the World (Girls) by Beyonce. And obviously, with that amount of fame at 27 you probably already guessed what we’re about to write next.

Yes, he owns or used to own a lot of expensive and fast cars. Among those we count a Ferrari 458 Italia and a Lamborghini Aventador. Problem is it would seem there is enough room for some driving skills improvement, looking at this fellow’s records. He totaled his Italian sportscar, bought a new Audi R8 shortly after, only to get his driving license removed due to excessive speeding while out with the Lamborghini.

All that happened last year, yet more recently Afrojack decided to sell the Aventador, which is why the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse might actually be his. On the other hand, the particular hypercar we’re looking at in the video below is one of only 8 ever produced which means we’re talking million of dollars. Whatever the case, it’s pretty relieving to see that this time the DJ took the beast on a track, instead of pushing the pedal on the street.

Well, at least now you know what type of job you need to chase after to ever get to drive a Bugatti on the race track. Or not.
